The Exorcist on FOX
« on: October 16, 2016, 01:16:32 PM »
Is anyone watching The Exorcist tv show on Fox? I'm really enjoying it so far. Most of the actors are really good (Geena Davis isn't given much to do sadly although her performance is fine), the visuals are great,  and the storyline is starting to get really interesting.

Hopefully, the solid reviews are enough for Fox to keep it since the ratings are pretty bad.

I started it but stopped around the 3rd episode. Didn't see how they could extend this beyond a season, maybe 2 at the most and although it was solid the lack of a long term concept kind of put me off.

Only way I could see this going is if they tried to either do an American Horror Story style or do new priests marginally tied to the original first season characters.

I really don't know if it's even gonna even make it a season. Some sites say the 6th episode is the last, some say it's 8 episodes, and some say it's 13. Either way, I'm thinking of it more as a miniseries. Especially with

Spoiler: show
The exorcism taking place next week in episode 5


I can't see it lasting much longer than 8 episodes since the central storyline seems to be finishing up.

I have been pleasantly surprised at how good the show has been.  My biggest reservation always has been how you do this sub-genre on a series TV without it devolving into a "Exorcism of the week" type of deal.  If this ends up just being a really solid mini-series and then ends I will be completely fine with it.

I dunno, I think the whole thing with the multiple murder with the organs taken is pointing towards some bigger event happening and this single possession is just the start, I'm betting the demon they exorcise teases with something about the bigger threat to come or such.

Yeah, that was perfectly done and I can't wait to see where it goes from here.

I really like the actor that plays Marcus. He's fantastic.

Yep this series is probably the best surprise of this season. Kind of reminds me when Fox dropped Wayward Pines on us in the middle of the spring/summer after having had sat on it for a couple years and it ended up being really good.
